Corrie Siegel: STAR TOURS

CORRIELANDING

Side Street Projects is pleased to announce a visit from Star Tours, an exhibition located within a moving truck by artist Corrie Siegel. This nomadic initiative intends to draw connections between local communities, Los Angeles history, and cross-cultural narratives of diaspora. Over the month of January the mobile gallery and associated programming will function as a vehicle for collaboration and exploration at sites throughout Los Angeles. On January 11 from 11 am to 2 pm Side Street Project visitors are invited to view the exhibition, learn micrography- an art form developed by 8th century Hebrew scribes that sculpts small text to form an image, and contribute to an artwork through sharing their stories.
